Museo Rosenbach ‎– "Zarathustra" (Ricordi ‎– SMRL 6113) 1973


Inside this very eye-catching cover is yet more extremly complex Italian progressive rock with a Nietzschean concept stitching it all together.
Despite a slow start, with that archetypal throaty Italian whine via 'Jesus Christ Superstar' that passes for vocals, this album quickly transforms itself into a franticly shifting piece of superb symphonic prog.
As what seemed to be the norm in Italy,Museo Rosenbach lasted for one album,this one,broke up, then reformed in the 21st century when the world had caught up.
Rather good,its got Mellotrons on it,and I'm sure I've met that geezer on the cover somewhere before!? Wasn't he in Crass?

Great one JZ! Thanks. Prog lovin' Diesters may dig Semiramis too, similar in style to Museo.

Amazing album! Thanks. Any chance for an IL VOLO upload? Their two albums from 74 and 75 are absolutely great.
